About

Surface Gallery is the local, volunteer-led, Contemporary Art gallery of Nottingham.

We operate as a social enterprise celebrating and supporting the talent in our city, with a focus on engaging our immediate community and broadening participation in the arts. We are led by a co-operative team of early-career professionals, who support each other in order to learn more about running a successful independent art gallery.

Located within Nottingham’s burgeoning Creative Quarter, Surface Gallery’s three-story building welcomes visitors and exhibitors to its two gallery spaces, nine artist studios and open plan office area.

Surface Gallery was founded in 1999 by a group of Nottingham Trent University graduates under the name of Turtle Arts. The independent art gallery was housed in the NVAC building on Mansfield Road, Nottingham. 

In September 2002 Turtle Arts changed its name to Surface Gallery and in November 2008, Surface Gallery moved to its new and current location on Southwell Road in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.
